(NECN: John Moroney) - There's just 4 days left until Election Day and Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick is holding onto his lead in the polls.
The latest Suffolk University poll gives Patrick a 7-point lead over Republican Charlie Baker. Patrick has 46%, Baker has 39%, Independent Tim Cahill has 9%, and Green-Rainbow candidate Jill Stein has 2%. That means there has been almost no change in the poll over the last week.
Meantime out on the campaign trail, Baker criticized Patrick over taxes, while the governor said his opponent is ignoring western Massachusetts.

Baker also criticized Patrick over a Boston Herald report that his administration planned to buy a $91 million barge whose main job would be to plant wind turbines in the ocean floor.

The Patrick administration says the plan was unrelated to the Cape Wind project.
